Ali Wallace Goes For Miss America Taking Brain Champions To Atlantic City
Our very own Alexis “Ali” Wallace was recently named Miss Portland and went on to win the Title of Miss Oregon. She will now compete for Miss America in Atlantic City this weekend. The former High School Cheer Leader was injured during her competition as a Cheerleader at Sunset High School when she landed on a non-padded surface doing a round off back tuck.
Battling back Ali joined us for our Brain Champions founding weekend and went on to lobby for better safety standards in Cheer and worked with her athletic director to make sure all girls received a pre-season baseline concussion test through ImPACT. This was a huge victory for Ali and the girls. Her work continues all the way to Miss America where Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness is her National platform.
If she win Miss America Ali will have one of the biggest stages in the world from which to carry out the Mission of Brain Champions- to protect and educate all K-12 athletes and their parents and coaches.
